You should never talk about politics on a first date. However, you could show your date a political stand up special to get an idea of their ideologies. Some comedians have no problem diving into the treacherous world that can be politics. These days, there is more material than ever before, and no matter what side of the political aisle you lean on, you can find a comedian who speaks to you. The funniest political comedy specials will depend on your viewpoints, and that is why you should do your patriotic duty and vote for your favorite specials of all time.
For liberals, David Cross released Making America Great Again in 2016 where he tackles everything from President Donald Trump to religion. Cross is no stranger to political commentary. On previous albums, Cross made his opinion on the Bush Administration abundantly clear time and time again. For conservatives, Dennis Miller released his ninth stand up special titled Fake News, Real Jokes He lets his thoughts on the Clintons be known, and he also delves into the NFL.
